Wind tunnel conditions including test model local flow properties are defined along with a discussion of acoustic data obtained for the various flow regimes of interest transition, fully turbulent, base and separated flow. Finally, test data in the form of acoustic intensity distributions along the vehicle and third octave pressure spectrums are presented.
